    Kay, I'm new at this.
    I have a Wii. I used to use NeoGamma backup launcher v8 on my games and it worked just fine. However, I played Black Ops. There was a patch that required me to update my Wii to v4.3, and now the v8 is patched. Therefore, I installed NeoGamma v9 beta, and I tried it. This isn't patched but I keep getting the Error 1208! Now not only can I not play Black Ops, I can't play any of my other games. I checked how to fix it, but all of them talk about cIOS. I tried installing cIOS38rev17 or something like that but it didn't do anything. I also tried other backup launchers but those were all patched! I'm pretty sure it can't be a bad burn because my Black Ops worked fine on v8 of NeoGamma. HELP PLEASE!

    EDIT: I found out I DO use DVD-R discs, any suggestions now?

    Use Neogamma R9 beta with DVD-R discs.

    Non rewritable? Does that mean I have to reburn all my games on DVD-R discs?

    EDIT: I use DVD-R discs AND updated my cIOS's and I still get error 1208.

    Wait, so would I need an external hard drive for that? And would I have to upload all my games onto the hard drive?

    Thanks, can you give me a USB loader channel that works on version 4.3?
    Maybe a link to a guide? (sorry if I sound nubish)

    "but all of them talk about cIOS"

    This has a reason, it worked before for you, you did update and try to load DVD-Rs with NeoGamma. I don't know why nobdoy else says this, but: "YOU NEED TO INSTALL A CIOS!". If you have issues with the cIOS installer, you need to explain these, or else you won't get anywhere.

    Your NeoGamma might have a bug and use IOS36 instead of a cIOS while you actually have a cIOS installed. I haven't heard of this yet, but to be sure, just delete the NeoGamma config file on sd card, or if you use a channel, take the sd card out before booting NeoGamma.

    I've done a little checking, and my NeoGamma is v9 b47 IOS36 (rev3608).
    I'm running a DVD-R.

    I'm not sure what you mean by the config file, because I don't seem to see any config file in my NeoGamma folder. Should I try reinstalling NeoGamma v9?

    im having exactly the same problem.

    i already had homebrew channel on my wii from years ago but updated it with modmii, xflak talked me through it and everything was fine untill i got a couple of new backup disks done.

    i have backup disks that i used to use on the old homebrew channel and these work fine after remodding but when ive made new ones using dvd-r disks
    (ive done 3 now) i try to load them in neogamma and get this message every time

    DVDERR(1208), DISK ID

    at the bottom of the screen it says

    NEOGAMMA R9 B47, CIOS56 REV20 SLOT249


    i hope someone has a fix for this

    are verbatim just plain white so you can print onto the disk?

    There may be pritable verbatims too, but i think those are technically different discs. So if somebody says: "Use Verbatim discs", he means ones without white lable or lighscribe capability or whatever, just normal, working discs.
